    — ClearFlow Executives Comment on Possible Solutions to Retained Blood Syndrome for  Challenging Patient Population– Anaheim, CA – April 28, 2016—Cardiac surgery investigators presented data revealing the role retained blood plays in complications after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation this week at the International Society for Heart & Lung Transplantation 2016 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. All patients recovering from LVAD implantation require chest tubes to drain shed blood around the heart and lungs in early recovery. If these chest tubes clog, Retained Blood Syndrome (RBS) may occur. Yesterday, Mayo Clinic heart surgeon Simon Maltais, MD, Ph.D, presented data from 252 patients undergoing VAD implantation. Results revealed that more
